California Procurement Lobbying Bill Vetoed
California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed Assembly Bill 1200.
The bill would have revised the definition of lobbyist to include third-party consultants who work to influence governmental procurement.
The governor’s veto message said the bill is not necessary and cited the existence of numerous laws already regulating state procurement.
